The Interview section, with Jerry, was done before the show on 3/23 and, while he mentions Crosby as being with the band, he never showed!
The "aircheck" segment is a recording of 3/21/75 which was a "practice
session" for the SNACK show and DOES feature Crosby, although his input
is fairly negligable.

So where did the tracks come from post JBG? The jams are great, but would like to know when they were played.

Subject: MY FIRST SHOW!!
This set the stage for many fine years of concert going, to this date.
This show, this recording.
Excellent quality for the time, and none of us there had heard a lick of the Blues for Allah stuff. The place was mesmerized, and Johnny B Goode is BLISTERING....
You can really hear all the musicians, including David Crosby on Rhythym Guitar, and Merl....
What a day!!!
This show most certainly set the stage for the statospheric 76 and 77 years.....which I was fortunate to attend some shows as well...

About Miles Davis opening for the Dead in 1970, Phil Lesh said : “As I listened, leaning over the amps with my jaw hanging agape, trying to comprehend the forces that Miles was unleashing onstage, I was thinking What’s the use. How can we possibly play after this? […] With this band, Miles literally invented fusion music. In some ways it was similar to what we were trying to do in our free jamming, but ever so much more dense with ideas – and seemingly controlled with an iron fist, even at its most alarmingly intense moments.”
I firmly and sincerely believe, if Miles witnessed this show, he would've said the same exact thing about the Dead.
THIS IS POWERFUL BEYOND DESCRIPTION.
Subject: You guys below are trying to rewrite history!
The history has been written. The notes played. Volumes written. Accept it for what it is. Go start your own fire.....
Just appreciate one of the most original acts for what it was. Nobody wrote a rule book.
This show is a one-of-a-kind performance. It is a high form of artistic expression. You will hear no music on Planet Earth like it before, during or since. It is what it is.
Subject: Short but sweet
This is a rare gem; not too much else like it in Dead history.
Subject: There is great stuff on here,

Subject: Keith's work
I will not quibble with the fact that Donna's contribution was below the standards of the band, and that they would have been served better by her absence.
However, I will challenge any assertion that Keith's keyboard work wasn't some of the best ever done with the Dead.
You won't hear Keith just playing the same six or seven notes over and over again, like you might hear Pig do on some of the Dark Stars I've heard.
Some may say that Jerry was sweet on Donna, and that's why they kept the two of them around, but I think it was Keith's contribution on piano that the band valued.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
